I do like a good podcast. Unfortunately tracking down the good ones is pretty tricky, especially, if like me, you don’t use iTunes. So my taste in podcasts is very dull. I tend to stick to the big names – The Guardian, BBC and the odd commercial radio station.
Perhaps the forthcoming Sony Radio Academy Awards will expand my taste? Its set up a new category of Internet Programme Award to "specifically recognise excellence in the creation of radio programmes produced for distribution via the internet."
UPDATE NOMINATIONS (28th March): The Times does rather well! No Guardian or BBC.

If you want quality podcasts from the US or Canada, take a look at the winners of The Podcast Awards. US Presidential hopeful, Barack Obama, didn’t win in the political podcast category. But check out Keith and The Girl under the ‘mature’ category – the shows are too long, but they can be pretty funny (at times)
